EA Forum - Johannesburg
The strategic importance of Information Security for organisations is gaining momentum. The current surge in cyber threats is compelling organisations to invest in information security to protect their assets. Rushing to protect assets often comes with the expense of excessive technology adoption without a valid strategic foundation. Enterprise Security Architecture is geared to address these issues, but is frequently misaligned with Enterprise Architecture.
At this month’s EA Forum, our speakers will explore avenues for the adoption and enforcement of Security-By-Design in the Enterprise Architecture value-chain so as position Risk, Security and IT as true business enablers.
